A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, existed a star named "More-On". The king of the star gave it it's name, thanks to the variety of things available there, never seen or found on any other star or galaxy before. The More-On was a beautiful planet, which lit up the sky with all its shine and pride. It had a lot more than any other place could provide. The king, Mo, treated all his star-people with love and called them Mo-On, which gradually turned into 'Moon'.
Soon, after years of happiness and prosperity of the moons, the people of a star named "Sun" grew jealous of their intense growth and beauty. They called for a war on the More-On, who tried to avoid it for as long as they could. Finally, the Sun-men decided to capture all their wealth, and created war through treachery and deception on the moons. Losing all their wealth and glory caused the More-On to wither, and it lost its shine. Finally, it looked like as dead as a rock, and was no more a famed star.
Time passed, and the rulers on Sun changed. One fine, generous prince was born, who knew the past star wars were a huge mistake. He apologised to the rulers and people of More-On on behalf of all sun-men. He told them that he could not return the long-lost wealth, but he could give them back their light.
And this is how the Sun gave the More-On, today called Moon, in honour of its people, it's shine and power to light up the night sky.
And yes, you may find some people from More-On who fled in fear of being burned by the sun and reached earth. They are even around you, now more commonly called 'morons'.
